    At the beginning of each fiscal year, the Finance Support runs a process that creates a new effective dated row in the Department Budget Table (DBT) that does the following:
    • Faculty with split appointment in February – June pay periods (Spring): sets up the same split in the July pay period of the following year and inactivates splits starting with the August pay period.
    • Faculty with a split appointment from September – January pay periods: sets up the same split in the August pay period of the following year and inactivates the split starting with the September pay period.
    • Faculty with percentage split different between Fall and Spring: sets up the same split in Spring for the July pay period plus the same split in Fall for the August pay period of the following year, and inactivate splits starting with the September pay period.
    • Any other temporary appointment will have an inactivated date of 7/1/yyyy.
